Aaron Broussard's First Interview with Tim Russert

MR. BROUSSARD: Nobody's coming to get us. Nobody's coming to get us. The secretary has promised. Everybody's promised. They've had press conferences. I'm sick of the press conferences. For God sakes, shut up and send us somebody.

Just as Cindy Sheehan is every soldier's mother, the mother who drowned in that nursing home is America's conscience finally waking up. The neocons won't give up easily, but they're finished. American society is far more than the sum total of individual wants and assets; it is a dense network of commitments that people have to one another and among generations and classes too. To those who wave flags and say These Colors Don't Run, I say These Ties Don't Break. Nice try, though, you selfish, meanspirited, arrogant lowlifes.

Promises, promises, promises ... then death Sun Sep 4, 2:45 PM ET

NEW ORLEANS, United States (AFP) - Day after day, the aged woman clung tolife in her submerged nursing home. Day after day, her son called to say help was on The way. But rescue never came. Only a watery death.

Aaron Broussard, president of the Jefferson Parish section of New Orleans, could not stop bawling Sunday, as he told NBC television of the agonizing death of a colleague's elderly mother in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

"His mother was trapped in St. Bernard nursing home, and every day she called him and said, 'Are you coming, son? Is somebody coming?'"

"He said, 'Yeah, mama, somebody is coming to get you. Somebody is coming to get you."

'Somebody's coming to get you on Tuesday.
"'Somebody's coming to get you on Wednesday.
"'Somebody's coming to get you on Thursday.
"'Somebody's coming to get you on Friday.'"

""And she drowned Friday night!" Broussard wailed. "She drowned Friday night!"
Broussard quivered with rage as he gave voice to the frustration felt by much of thebattered southern city at the slow pace of rescue operations
